Later, he acts in a commercial for STAG.The Protagonist soon seizes an opportunity to kidnap Birk in an attempt to hurt STAG, and succeeds.Later, when STAG assaults the Saints HQ to recover Josh, Cyrus Temple offers the Saints the chance to turn Josh over, but he wishes to stay with the Saints out of an attempt to get closer to Shaundi. If he is kept he is unlocked as a homie that can be called to show up as either himself or Nyte Blayde.
